Señora Bast's Spanish Class
CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS AND STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS
LISTENING: I will speak mostly Spanish in class. Listen for main ideas and pronunciation modeling. *Watch for context clues from gestures, actions, and cognates.
READING: Students will be reading some instructions in Spanish as well as short readings. *Use pictures, cognates, and background knowledge to understand main ideas.
WRITING: Take notes in your Spanish notebook. DO NOT use translation websites on writing assignments unless you check with Sra. Bast about vocabulary first. You need to demonstrate what you know. *Use your notes, the textbook, and handouts for language patterns. Use a dictionary for individual words only, not phrases.
Supplies needed for Spanish class:

Be safe. Be ready. Be respectful. Be responsible.
I will use the same behavior chart and expectations used in all Silverbrook classrooms. I will call or email home if a student is given more than one warning and/or has continued warnings issued.

We will occasionally use resources on senorwooly.com, a website created by a Spanish teacher specifically for Spanish students. It uses music, videos and games to increase proficiency in the language. Students will be given their own password to access it.
